Biography

Parallels is Cameron Findlay (Drums, Production), Holly Dodson (Vocals and Keyboards) and Joey Kehoe (Synths). Hailing from Toronto, Parallels is building a loyal following since their formation in October 2008.
Findlay is the former drummer of Canadian Electro group, Crystal Castles. While on tour, Findlay spent much of his free time recording demos of what would later become the foundation for Parallels’ current repertoire. In 2008, he emailed Dodson some of the half-finished songs he had been working on, and through email they co-wrote their first single “Ultralight”. Findlay returned to Toronto at the end of CC’s 2008 tour, and formed Parallels which he intended to be his main focus. Dodson and Findlay continued to write more material, and released “Ultralight” as a 5-song digital single on iTunes later that year.

They had known Joey Kehoe through friends and approached him to join their project for their first show, opening for Glass Candy (at Wrongbar in Toronto, November 7th 2008). Kehoe has been active in the Toronto music scene for a few years, writing and performing with Tuxedomask, his solo project. Kehoe is now an important player in the Parallels project with his musical contributions to their live shows as a highly skilled keyboardist.

They will also be performing on the same stage as Crystal Castles at TIME Festival, on July 25th also in Toronto.
